In New York City Sewage, a Mysterious Coronavirus Signal

New York City’s #wastewater contains #coronavirus sequences with unique mutations that have not been reported in human patients. There is no evidence that the "cryptic lineages" pose a health risk to humans, but researchers don't know where they came from. #COVID19 #SARSCoV2 By Emily Anthes Last January, a team of researchers searching for the coronavirus in New York City’s wastewater spotted something strange in their samples. The viral fragments they found had a unique con

Signs of the Omicron variant are being found in California wastewater systems

In the effort to track the spread of #SARSCoV2 #coronavirus, researchers are monitoring #wastewater in many locations around the state of California. The approach has found the virus in wastewater in Sacramento area, the Central Valley & the Bay Area. In the effort to track the spread of the #Omicron variant of the coronavirus, researchers in California are monitoring the wastewater in many locations around the state. The approach has already uncovered signs of the variant in

Fungal-mediated microbial electrochemical system: development, application and challenges

#mycology #microbiology #biofuel #wastewater Microbial fuel cell (MFC) that generates bioelectricity from biodegradable waste receives significant interest to biologists. Fungi plays a significant role as both anodic and cathodic catalysts in MFCs. Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a fungus species with characteristics for the transfer of electrons through mediators such as methylene blue (MB), neutral red (NR) or without a mediator. Significant performance of fungal cells in exoce

The myriad ways sewage surveillance is helping fight COVID around the world

#wastewater #water #SARSCoV2 #covid19 #coronavirus #sewage From the subarctic community of Yellowknife, Canada, to the subtropical city of Brisbane, Australia, scientists in more than 50 nations are now monitoring the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in sewage. The number of sewage-surveillance programmes tracking COVID-19 has exploded during the past year from a dozen or so research projects to more than 200, following the discovery that whole virus particles and viral fragments are she
